New camp set up on route of National Grid’s monster gas pipeline in Wales


Yesterday (Monday 8th) a small camp was set-up across a public footpath (in trebanos, wales) when construction workers tried to resume work on the gas pipe line. People are also occupying the pipe, and all work has been stopped. The camp cannot be removed as it has been set-up on a public footpath. We need people URGENTLY, to support the small camp, do direct actions on other consturction work, occupy pipes, and to be part of future plans to fight the pipe across wales.

how to make lock-ons (lessons from Faslane 365)

The basic principle of a lock-on is to lock yourself onto something so that you cannot be easily physically removed. That something can be another person or something fixed. The best way is with a climbing carabina and a chain or rope around your wrist. The important thing is to make it very difficult for the police or whoever to cut your lock-on off. Thats where the fun part comes in, covering that lock-on to make it very difficult to get to, thus delaying the authorities and making your blockade as successful as possible. They will possibly have access to specialist equipment.
